Callisia repens ‘Bianca’ (Turtle Vine) boasts alternating, oval leaves that may appear pink, green, or striped with both. More commonly known as Bolivian Jew Bianca, Pink bubbles plant or pink lady, this heavily branched tropical plant will form a mat of superb foliage when placed in a hanging basket. Delicate white flowers may bloom during summer months.

When caring for ‘Bianca’, be sure to keep soil evenly moist and well-drained - allowing the top of the soil to dry between waterings. Bright, indirect light is preferred, though ‘Bianca’ can tolerate some direct sunlight, excepting late afternoons in summer. Though tolerant of shade, the plant may become lanky in darker conditions.
